Great Quote About Soul Mates

By November 12, 2013

Follow me on:

Readers let us know that our take on soul mates isn't always well received, so it is nice to see an article about soul mates that agrees with us. "The Top 4 Reasons Not to Believe in Soul Mates" also gives interesting statistics about soul mates.
John R. Buri, Ph.D.: "Soul Mates are made, not found. Choose wisely, and then work to make the person you have chosen the ongoing love of your life."

I, too, believe in soul mates! I also believe one’s soul mate can change over the course of one’s life – just as one changes him/herself. I’ve had two soul mates in my life (still have my second). Married at seventeen for twenty years, my first wife was my soul mate. Remarried now for over twenty, my present wife is my soul mate.

I’ve always believed there are dozens-perhaps hundreds (thousands?) – of people (women) I could not only love, but be with for a lifetime. With the billions of women out there, it seems, to me, almost silly to think otherwise.

Where did the notion of a soul mate come from anyways? I went to Google to find the answer (and Google told me that Wikipedia had the answer). Apparently, Plato came up with the idea (waaay back when the earth was flat). He introduced it in The Symposium where one of his characters tells the story of how humans originally had four hands and four feet, and a single head with two faces. But the god Zeus feared the might and strength of these humans and split them in half, leaving them to spend the rest of their lives searching for their other half or ‘soul mate’ to complete them.

I don’t believe in soul mates – here’s why:
